Spiced Lamb & Bean Tacos with Cheater’s Salad Cream

G's Spiced Lamb and Bean Tacos | thaimeupkitchen.com

I am not a really good wife in the traditional sense.

It’s cool, though. G recognizes that my major contributions to our marriage are: setting the robo vacuum, cooking, and giving some major cheek.  G is a far more domesticated creature than I could ever be and for which I am very very grateful. I never have to whinge (complain) about dirty clothes on the floor, nag about a smelly bin (trash) or that the lawn needs mowing. Hell, the man even likes to iron.

Roasted Red Pork with Gravy (Moo Daeng)

Roasted Red Pork with Gravy | Thaimeupkitchen.comShowing love to all the single ladies (all the single ladies) on Valentine’s Day.

In my thirty-odd years, I have had my fair share of single Valentine’s Days. They numbered more than the lovey couple ones, even though I’m married now (whoa, married)! Of course, I appreciate the jewelry/chocolates/funny card bit, but before I met G, I was THE Single Girl.

And I loved it.
